Canyon Reflections

Grand Canyon watercolor paintingThe Canyon walls are composed of layers of rock deposited 2 million years ago, then exposed by the erosive action of the Colorado River.

This painting captures a bit of the incredible color of the rock layers.  The distant butte is tan Kaibab and Cocoino sandstone.  Nearer cliffs are Supai Group rock and Redwall limestone (actually gray rock stained red by the Supai above).

At river level in this painting, Bright Angel Shale presents purple and jade green bands.

Watercolor by Kim Solga.
